   We held off on El Mirage as Linda has been having radiation treatments since December and I need to be with her.

   Not making Bville either but hopefully Nov. El Mirage.

John and Troy,

Sorry to hear about Linda. Thoughts and prayers for her.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Some future plans discussed tonight: before we race again we need to pull the engine and replace all of the sleeves and pistons, pull the water tanks out and modify the tin underneath to creat more space for the panhard bar, replace rear brake system.  Hopefully we will race again next May!

  Maybe Nov? We got away from our original chassis tune because the sheet metal on the chassis was bottoming out on the panhard bar. there's adjustments on the shock mounts so we moved the shocks up + the spring platforms. this changed the set up to much + made the car to stiff. So by cutting the sheet metal to make space for the panhard bar we can get back to the original setup.

Every few pages I like to put up videos of our runs so if people want to find them they can locate them a little easier.  These are some of our better videos.

     These are in 2008





                 2009



                 2010





 More from the past

            JL222

  Rob...here's the videos. The 1st one is El Mirage, car hooks up and goes 152 mph in 10.2 sec. Then track turns bad which you can see from other video.

  Another year already shocked


  The second video shows the in car view of the 1st video, you can see the throttle on left of hood and how busy Troy's
hands are steering back and forth, saving a spin.
  Makes me think that faster steering would help.
 
  Hurry up EL NINO and flood the lakebed, so the 222 Camaro could make a full pass cool

           JL222

 I like to watch these videos, gets me inthused grin

  Troy came out today and we worked on installing new  hat, rotor and caliper on left rear. Of course it didn't just bolt right up.

  Housing ends must not have been welded  in the exact spot and a bit angled. So not parallel with rotor. caliper would not install without grinding down mounting pads on caliper. Almost got it just a few more thou of shaving. Plenty of metal left.

  Hope other side goes better.

A few years back we noticed the panhard bar hitting the tin above it on the car, so we changed the shock position to help with clearance.  Ever since the car seemed to not handle as well.









The last photo with the panhard sticking through is an over exaggeration of how far it will come up, but you get the idea.

  The intercooler water tank sits above the cut out tin, so we need to cut out the bottom of tank to match. Thinking about using Flex Seal.

   Clean up tin and repaint.

  Also found out why rotors were rubbing on disk brakes. Ford 9'' Axle slipping on bearing shocked

I always tig tack the retaining ring. It's an old oval track trick.
